      [Japan ca.1880's]. Color woodblock print, very clean, nice impression, minor rubbing, with Zeshin Signature, Tairyukyo seal in read, 24.9 cm., 24 cm. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION *** *** A FAMOUS PRINT, EXPRESSING NEW YEARS'S IN JAPAN "HAGOITA" The "Hagoita" [Battledore or 'paddle'] is use in Japan during the New Year celebration in a game of "Shuttlecock" where a tiny "birdie" with feathers is batted back and forth between friends. WHO WAS SHIBATA ZESHIN 1807-1891: Was a superb and talented Shin-hanga painter and woodblock print designer. While his production of prints was very small when compared to his contemporaries, his high-quality and stunning composition was beyond most other artists of his time. Ernest Fenollosa was fascinated with Zeshin, and said about him: "The Japanese genius lay in the line of art objects featuring decoration and design." Zeshin also did a great number of the most superb lacquer ware designs, may inspired or tested in his woodblock prints. he remains one of the highest masters of all time, respected as one of the all time ten best from Japan. His stature continues unquestioned, and admired by museums and collectors throughout the world. His "Zen" simple designs reflect his keen ability to express simplicity which is essentially Japanese. Bar none he stands out in the artistic world. ABOUT THE SEAL: Per Henderson [2nd.entry below] he cites the artist's seal is Tairyukyo, no.36 in the seal index of his 1976 catalog.

        Heidi's Lehr- und Wander-Jahre. Eine Geschichte für Kinder und auch für Solche, welche die Kinder lieb haben. Von der Verfasserin von "Ein Blatt auf Vrony's Grab". [Together with:] Heidi kann brauchen, was es gelernt hat.

      Gotha: Friedrich Andreas Perthes, 1880-81 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original red cloth decorated in black and lettered in gilt, marbled edges, white glossy endpapers, volume II with decorative endpapers, marbled edges. Housed in a custom red quarter morocco slipcase and red cloth chemise. Vol I: spine faded, recased with ?new endpapers, a couple of spots to contents; vol. II: contemporary ownership inscription in ink on title-page. A little colour restoration to head of spine, hinges partly cracked but holding. An excellent set. First editions of both parts in the original German. Throughout the 1870s Johanna Spyri (1827–1901) published stories for adults and children based around her reminiscences of growing up in rural Switzerland. But huge success came with the publication of Heidi, the most important Swiss contribution to children's literature after the "Swiss Family Robinson" of J. R. Wyss. As usual with Christmas books, the first book was published in December 1879 but dated the following year. Spyri wrote the novel in just four weeks. It was first published anonymously in German, and quickly became an international best-seller and has been translated into 50 languages (English in 1885 by Charles Tritten who later published the continuations "Heidi Grows Up" and "Heidi's Children"), sold 50 million copies, and inspired a whole series of films. Volume I was issued without the author's name on the title page but "Von der Verfasserin von 'Ein Blatt auf Vrony's Grab'" ("From the author of."); volume II is titled "Heidi kann gebrauchen, was es gelernt hat" and was published as part V of "Geschichten für Kinder und auch für Solche, welche die Kinder lieb haben", this time under Spyri's name. Perhaps because of the fragile paper used, the first editions of the two parts of Heidi are scarce. Doderer III, 447; Hürlimann 310; Seebass II, 1930 ("rare", vol. 2 only); Wegehaupt III, 3633 (vol. 2 only); Weilenmann 3216 & 3233. [Attributes: First Edition]

Presumed 1st edition (copyright page blank and undated but ca. early 1880s). 10-7/8" tall x 8-3/4" wide x 2" thick (quite heavy). Called for errata sheet bound in. 570 pages including Index, plus 4 pages (2 double-sided sheets) of ads. One plate is listed as being at page 551 and is actually bound in at 556. Laid in is a contemporary to the book newsletter printed on blue paper, 4 pages (large sheet folded once, printed both sides, entitled 'Land', which is an ad for 'A Journal for all interested in Landed and House Property', on the front page, an ad for 'The Livestock Journal and Fancier's Gazette' on the last page, and lists books published by this publisher on the middle two pages. It was not until the late 1800s that cattle breeds were developed specifically for dairy purposes. This book was an effort in the late 19th century to encourage local dairying by teaching the methods needed for raising dairy cattle and producing milk, butter and cheese, and doing so in a safe-for-consumption and standardized manner, instead of importing too much product. Also, in an effort to improve the quality of American dairy products and to make them more acceptable abroad, the Bureau of Animal Industry of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) established the Division of Agrostology and the Dairy Division in 1895, and used some of the information first made available in this book, including the effects of forage grasses on the flavor, odor, and quality of milk and milk products. The watercolor drawing on the left depicts different types of pasture grasses.; Color Illustrations; 10-7/8" x 8-3/4"; 570 incl. Index pages, 41, 44, 45, 46, 49, 60, F/NONE

        Le Maréchal de Fabert (1599-1662) Etude historique d'après ses lettres et des pièces inédites [ Edition originale - Livre dédicacé par l'auteur, avec une longue L.A.S. de l'auteur ] 1ère Partie ; 1599-1652 ; 2e Partie : 1653-1662

      Etude historique d'après ses lettres et des pièces inédites tirée de la Bibliothèque et des Archives Nationales, des Archives des Affaires Etrangères, du Dépôt de la Guerre, etc. 2 vol. in-8 reliure demi-veau bleu, dos à 5 nerfs ornés, Librairie Académique Didier et Cie, Paris, 1880-1881, frontispice, XI-445 pp.; 438 pp. Remarquable exemplaire de l'édition originale, enrichi d'un bel envoi de l'auteur "A Monsieur l'abbé R...., hommage de très respectueux dévouement" et surtout d'une très intéressante lettre autographe de 4 pages, datée d'amiens le 17 février 1885, et signée par l'auteur Jules Bourelly, a été reliée en tête de l'ouvrage. Il sollicite de l'abbé (de Troyes) "un compte-rendu dans le Monde". "Fabert est un héros chrétien dans toute l'acception du mot. Je ne sais pourquoi quelques auteurs et encore récemment un critique en ont fait un protestant. Sa vie abonde cependant en témoignages de foi catholique. Dans un discours prononcé la veille de sa mort et adressé aux ministres protestants de Sedan pour les amener à rentrer dans le giron de l'Eglise romaine, il rappelle qu'il a été élevé, par une mère pieuse, dans cette religion et qu'il y mourra... Dans ce volume, j'étudie Fabert comme réformateur financier. C'est un des côtés négligés ou à peine entrevus jusqu'ici. Le soldat messin est, sous ce rapport, un précurseur de Vauban [ .... ] J'appelle votre attention sur [ les pages ] qui sont consacrées aux relations de Fabert avec Arnauld d'Andilly. En définitive, la monographie que je publie est une étude sur le 17e siècle. Fabert a été mêlé de fort près à tous les événements importants des 60 premières années. Il a été le Conseiller de Richelieu, le confident de Mazarin ; il a eu pour amis les personnages les plus connus ou les plus illustres du temps, y compris Vincent de Paul.

The lithograph plates in these volumes are of very high quality, on especially thin paper used to enhance the imprint, showing everything of interest in the city at the time, along with descriptive and historical text by the author. The plates as well as the text are of great value in documenting the architectural scene in Mexico, esp. the capitol. (Even included are views of the new streetcar system that had been recently installed.) The lithographs were done by L. Garces and executed by the firm of Murguia. Mathes in his book on Mexican lithography, Mexico on Stone, pp. 41-44, calls the set: "The most important album of Mexican views of the century". Reprinted in the 1970's in a deluxe and very limited edition, the original set is extremely scarce on the market -- no complete sets have apparently ever come up at auction; OCLC notes only 6 library holdings, but with no indication of the completeness of the volumes. (Palau 270223/4) Volumes 1 and 2 are bound in red cloth over marbled boards, vol. 3 in red cloth alone. Aside from the defect noted in vol. iii, very good copies.

      - MOVEABLE. SPEAKING PUZZLE BOX. No pub. information, circa 1880. This is a Victorian cube puzzle in the original box - but this puzzle is different. Each of the 6 cubes makes a different sound when a string is pulled. The box is very large, measuring 16 1/2" wide x 11 3/4 " deep and 6 " high - in fine condition with metal clasps. The box is covered with printed chromolithographed paper and the top of the box features a brightly colored rooster and other chickens on the farm. Inside the box are six large cubes - each is 5" on a side. Like other cube puzzles of the era, the child can make 6 different scenes. Unlike any other puzzle, EACH OF THE CUBES MAKES A DIFFERENT SOUND when the string on each of the cubes is pulled (one string is missing) Laid-in are the six original large chromolithogrphed scenes that the child uses as guide to assmble the puzzles (the plate on the cover is the sixth scene). This is a glorious puzzle, extraordinarily rare.

Arthur takes pity on the ?whoring and brandy-drinking? Carrie and marries her in an attempt to cure her ways.
